15 LAUD OVffiRS 1 FLORIDA STUDY draiage mm CUT-OVER LANDS PRESENT PROB LEMS SIMILAR TO THOSE OF THE SWAMP TERRITORY. New Orleans. Nov. 14. That the own ers of cut-over lands have a very com mon Interest with the owners of so-called swamp or overflow lands In the bringing of both c?a3ses promptly into beneficial agricultural use, was emphatically de clared ' by A. G. T. Moore, director of cut-over land utilization. Southern Fine Association, in an address before the National Drainage Congress at St. Louts, Mo., on Wednesday, November 12th. The entire south presents to the minds of the unposted resident of other sec tions of the country, a vast sparsely settled, malaria infected. mosquito ridden, and strange to say at this late date, yellow fever Infected population. It Is not generally known that yellow fever has been completely eradicated from the south by the elimination of. the Btegomeyia mosquito, nor is it known the extent to which 'malaria has been curtailed. The tininltlajive mind does not differentiate between the , Stegomtyla and common swamp mosquito, and the mere fact of mosquito prevalence creates an unfavorable psychology towards the south. Naturally, until the mosquito is elim inated this mistaken impression will pre vail. Although the mosquito finds his breeding place In the swamps he does not confine his activities thereto, but comes up In big droves to pester the patience and efficiency of the resident on so-called cut-over pine lands for many mifcs distant from his breeding place. Reclamation of swamp and overflow lands In the south will eradicate the mos quito and thereby indirectly re-act to the benefit of the owners of so-called cut-over pine land. Tho owners of these two classes of lands have in the past been too prone to consider their interests divergent, and indeed, they are in bo far as direct lands sales are concerned, but there has not been exhibited In the past a sufficient spirit of co-operation between them to tho end that the south as a whole get her stride towards Idle land utilization. It Is a well-known fact that the in herent fertility of reclaimed soil Is materially greater than that xt Irrigated arid land, yet one hundred and twenty -or.o odd million dollars have been spent by the federal government for irrigation in the western states. Call it a revolving furid lf you will, but" the fact remains that the money was spent. I may be improperly posted, but I do not believe that one hundred and twenty-one cents were ever spent by the federal govern ment In the reclamation of southern overflow lands. There are possibly two reasons for this. The first being that the arid lands were held in federal owner ship, and secondly the south has never been organized to the extent that It could successfully approach congress rthI the several state legislatures to the cn5 that our vast idle acreage be brought Into beneficial agricultural use through federal co-operation and expenditures of PAN-GERMANISTS CHEER EMPIRE Nationalist Demonstration Breaks Up Reichstag Com mittee Hearing. - Berlin, Nov. 14. (By Associated Press) Pan-German students today refused to permit Field ; Marshal Von Hindenberg to enter the Reichstag building to testify before the subcom mittee Investigating war responsibilIr tles. It was a nationalist demonstra tion for Hindenburg and Ludendorff and for a time assumed serious pro portions, as the crowd cheered Hinden burg, Ludendorff and shouted "Down with the Jewish government." They then cheered for the former kaiser and the empire. state and federal government money. There are three distinct drainage prob lems confronting the south tiat of the overflow lands in the griff states, the everglades of Florida and the overflow lands of the South Atlantic states. The everglades. I believe, we may dismiss aa a. consideration, because through the Florida. state co-operation with private enterprise that problem seems well on tlic way towards solution. There Is much room, however, for constructive activity with federal and state co-operation in the other sections of the south mentioned, and the south should et strongly be hind the so-called Smith-Chamberlain bill to the end that this constructive ac tivity be facilitated and expedited. SALE ENGLISH ABBEY LIKELY WESTMINSTER MAY BE. SACRI FICED TO PAY THE NATIONAL DEBT CREATED BY THE WAR. Lonon, Nov. 13. Observers of Ggeat Britain financial problems attach some significance to a suggestion made re cently that the main burden of paying off the huge national debt created by the war nhould be laid upon the church of Kngland and the church of Scotland, more particularly on the former. . The proposal Is that all their property, in cluding Westminister Abbey should be sold and converted into cash for the rei:ef of the debt-afflicted country. The attention attracted by the Idea is dde largely to Its source, it being brought forward by the cftatlst, one of the widely read journals of finance and trade. The writer of the article asserts the annual Interest charge of 500,000,000 pounds, which he estimates Kngland is facing, will hang like a mill stone around " the nation's neck unless some means is fou.nd to get rid of it. Hence the necessity of making , a large hole in the debt "by one large sacrifice." with those who have the most money Contributing the most in the emergency. "There . is no reason," argues the writer, "why the church of England shculd be supported by the whole popu lation. It is not believed in by the whole population, and, therefore, it has lost all right to exact support from those who do not attend Its services. What is wanted now is that the whole property of the church, without exception, should b used for the freeing of the country from debt. . . "It has been suggested , very little could be got for Westminster "Abbey. We differ entirely. We belie-v e that a very large sum could be got for , West minster Abbey. The wise course would be to put the abbey up at auction and allow - every great chrrch . to - bid for it aa much as they please."
